Report: Patriots attempting to trade WR Aaron Dobson

As the NFL approached the 4 p.m. deadline for all teams to trim their rosters to 75 players, the Patriots were apparently attempting to pull off yet another summer trade.

According to New England was "shopping" fourth-year former second-round pick wide receiver Aaron Dobson.

Dobson caught 37 passes with four touchdowns as a rookie out of Marshall in 2013, but finished each of the last two seasons on injured reserve, catching a combined total of 16 passes in 12 games in 2014-15.

The 6-3, 205-pounder had a nice 37-yard catch-and-run from Tom Brady in last Friday night's preseason win in Carolina, continuing what might be the best offseason of his young career. But he remains in a tight battle for a roster spot in New England at a receiver position that includes Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola (PUP), Chris Hogan, Keshawn Martin, Chris Harper and rookie Malcolm Mitchell.
